The Environment Agency expects £148 million of contributions to flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes to be realised between 2011-12 to 2014-15, including in-kind contributions. Approximately one quarter of the financial contributions to Environment Agency-led projects in 2013-14 and 2014-15 are being accessed directly from non-public sector partners. Providing an exact overall figure is difficult because we cannot say how much private money comes through sources such as community infrastructure levy.
